About the Author
Jonathan Buckley was editorial director at Rough Guides, where he wrote several guidebooks, including for Tuscany and Umbria, Florence, and Venice. He has also contributed to The Rough Guide to Classical Music and The Rough Guide to Opera. Buckley published his first novel, The Biography of Thomas Lang, in 1997, and has written several more, including the critically acclaimed Xerxes and The River Is the River.
Mark Ellingham founded Rough Guides in 1982 and has created many of the series new ventures over the years, including The Rough Guide to the Internet, The Rough Guide to World Music, and, only a little ashamedly, The Rough Guide to the Da Vinci Code.
Rough Guides are written by expert authors who are passionate about both writing and travel. They have detailed knowledge of the areas they write about—having either traveled extensively or lived there—and their expertise shines through on every page. It's priceless information, delivered with wit and insight, providing the down-to-earth, honest read that is the hallmark of Rough Guides.

Has eating places and accommodation with honest comments !
About 3/4 is Tuscany and 1/4 Umbria. Perhaps hadly surprising but does cover a fair amount of the cities including Perugia and about. A whole section on Florence. A 'must have' if you like to find the real Italy.
Well worth the money but get it well before you go, or you will want to have a second (or more) visit if you only read it when you arrive.
Without the guide it would not have happened.
This is one of the best Rough Guides we own (and we have several)
Get the guide and use it to plan your Tuscan trip - you won't regtet it.
